Beautiful hazy golden ale, cloudy lemon-orange hue, topped with a fluffy snow-white head. Good retention, and individual lines of lacing.

Immediate strong Belgian pale aroma: straw and Belgian candi sugar, yeast, and wheat. Sharp citrus slices through.

Classic Belgian pale flavor, but really delicate and well integrated: cloves, bananas, sugar, light lemon; a hint of citric acid without cutting through the soft sweetness; chewy malt flavors.

Lively feel with noticeable foaming, but otherwise soft and sticky in the mouth. A delicate brew that somehow demands slow sips.

This is an exceptional Belgian strong pale ale. Similar brews: Duvel, NEBCO 668. This might be as perfectly put together as any in the style I've ever had. Truly exceptional balance and overall feel.
